In their Preface the authors state that this book has been written especially for the medical student and the medical practitioner in the tropics and more temperate climates. A careful reading of the book convinces one that it should prove of great service to both student and practitioner, as the descriptions of disease are clear, adequate for the purpose intended, and the illustrations, although mostly reproductions, are well selected and printed, though some of the halftones have suffered from reproduction. The work is remarkedly up to date in the recording of the results of recent research upon the diseases considered, and for this reason, is of special value to the medical student.

The inclusion of amebiasis in a work treating of tropical fevers is somewhat unusual but as fever is a symptom of some forms of this infection, its inclusion is, after all, justified.
